A broad swath of modern reactionary and xenopobic sentiment tries to employ fake medieval history to create a fantasy version of Europe. Whether it’s Middle Earth or some bullshit about Agincourt, the British right can’t stop making stuff up. So, to dispel this, Riley (@raaleh), Milo (@Milo_Edwards), Nate (@inthesedeserts), and Alice (@AliceAvizandum ) spoke with academic Dr Eleanor Janega (@goingmedieval) about actual medieval history. And guess what, folks? We used it as an excuse to make jokes.
